FORT MYERS, Fla. -- A Christian school bible teacher who recently was nominated for a teaching award is accused of having sex with a student.

35-year-old Suzanne Owen was fired on Wednesday from Evangelical Christian School after school officials learned of the encounter with the student.

Thursday, Owen had her first appearance in court.

The judge ordered her to wear a GPS monitor and to stay away from any locations where the victim is know to be, including the school.

Owen's husband is also a soccer coach at the school, and is the only person associated with the school that she can have contact with.

Her bond was set for $50,000. Owen's next court date is scheduled for May 14th.
